Not only in India, there is a strong emphasis on the demand and manufacture of electric cars all over the world. Meanwhile, Japanese car maker Honda Cars has made a big announcement. The company has decided that Honda will sell only electric cars after 2040. That is, the company will not sell vehicles that run on conventional fuels after 2040. The announcement was made by the company’s new CEO Toshihiro Mibe. This was his first press conference since taking over the reins of the company.
Maib also explained how the company would achieve this target. In fact, the company will first try to take the ratio of battery-electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles to 40% of total sales by 2030 in all major markets. Later this ratio will be reduced to 80 per cent by 2035 and by 2040, the company will stop selling conventional fuel driven vehicles.
